With a few weeks before summer, many of our members hire students for summer help. Employers must provide adequate supervision, orientation and training for summer students to perform their summer jobs safely.

The minimum age of employment is 16 years old. However, there are exceptions for 14 and 15 year olds. For further clarification on minimum age and workplace restrictions, I invite you to review the information in this link: Minimum Age & Workplace Restrictions

MSA offers a suite of free resources to prepare your summer students.

  • Introduction to Workplace Safety
  • Eye, Hand and Back Safety

Overhead Crane Safety Webinar

Cranes are vital tools that can enhance operational efficiency, safety, and capability in handling heavy materials.

They can also be very dangerous when not operated or maintained properly. Misuse, lack of proper training, and failure to adhere to safety regulations can lead to severe accidents and fatalities.

Join us on June 20, 2024, at 11:00 AM, to learn about the essential safety protocols and compliance requirements that protect crane operators and bystanders. Gain insights into risk management, routine inspections, and effective communication strategies to ensure safe and efficient crane operations.
